licensing with a dial-up **email-only** account

I recently installed eM Client on a refurbished computer I gave to a family member.  This person lives in the middle of nowhere and has a dial-up email-only account.  Now the license on the free version needs to be activated, but the client has no way of getting to the server.  Is my only option (not involving a full internet connection) to uninstall eM Client and go with something else?

Hello, unfortunately eM Client needs to be able to connect to the server at least once in 14 days to allow you keep using the features, and check if the license is valid. I’m afraid this can’t be workaround.
